Re: Mission Possible C

Ohhh, at State?
Yeah, I suppose I should have clarified. We won state in Mission with that score of 1117 (ideal time 90), but we didn't make it to nationals as a team. Probably worked out for the best anyways; if I had been preparing for scioly I would not have been preparing for AP tests.

Re: Mission Possible C

Awesome score, what place did you get?
My partner and I got the gold medal for Mission, but our team as a whole ended up taking third.

Re: Mission Possible C

Would anyone like to share scores now that the season is over? My partner and I had a device which scored 1117 (plus or minus a few points, I can't remember exactly) at state with an ideal time of 90 seconds. If it had run perfectly (read: I hadn't spilled some of the mixture due to nerves) we woul...

Re: Mission Possible C

Now that the season is over, what do y'all think about the size bonus? I think that the size score is a useful way to differentiate between teams at the state and national level, but that it was weighted too heavily for small competitions (regionals & invitationals). When a single pint container th...

Re: Mission Possible C

What so you guys expect the scores to be at Nationals? I would expect 1000+
I expect 1200 to win it, and depending on the time, I wouldn't be shocked if the winner was either approaching or just over 1300. Nevertheless, if a person breaks 1100 and doesn't medal, *good game well played*.

Re: Mission Possible C

By the way - For State, the supervisor said an incandescent light bulb counted as Electrical --> Thermal --> Electromagnetic. Would this work at Nationals? Its one or the other. It depends on what you transfer to next. If it requires heat EL-Therm. If it requires light EL-EM I think for heat it sho...

Re: Mission Possible C

Is it ok to have a led light up in your device for a photocell before starting . the rule 3.n. "Energy devices (e.g.,Batteries, mousetraps,candles ) ,except motors, may be activated prior to starting the device.". I believe that it is. An led light would be considered an energy device which is not ...

Re: Water Quality B/C

Hi can someone explain to me how you make a correct salt solution for my salinometer. Hey there. So, the salt solutions which you will encounter in water quality will range from 1% to 10% in salinity. Salinity is the concentration of salt, in this case NaCl (if the term changes for different salts,...

Re: Technical Problem Solving C

So, about that WI state TPS test... We were expecting a test on sound and enzyme kinetics. Instead, we got a test about orbits and gravity. The problems weren't that difficult, anyways. We were given formulas and just substituted numbers in to answer the questions. The main issue was that the test ...
